Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Robert Hunter's 'Paying Medical Bills' Tour

DEBUNKED Whoops.

Sad that he's forced into it. Hunter was as essential a member of The Grateful Dead as any musician. He most of their songs that you can't stop from popping into your head. Live near a tour date? Go support Robert.

Full RS interview.

Well I just read the interview and I don't get that his situation is that dire. Thankfully. Seems like he's enjoying his new-found focus and I wish him well. Otoh, if desperate, he surely could go the auction route like what happened last month. $2 million for the original lyrics for Like a Rolling Stone written on an envelope. Surely he must have a trove of salable material lying around in the attics of his life. Don't know what he's waiting for.

Debunked by Hunter himself:

The most fun is reading all the commentary after the DMN article.

Glad to read that. I hadn't poked around any further.
